Extra-curricular

Extra-curricular programmes provide a relaxed environment for students to explore individual and group creative projects. These can take the form of lunchtime or after-school clubs as well as holiday programmes. 

“It has been wonderful to see our children grow in confidence and take a lead in developing their own ideas and interests.”

Tailored projects

Artists work with students to explore a variety of materials and techniques. We can tailor projects to be process or outcome based, with plenty of opportunities for students to develop their creative ideas and own lines of enquiry.

Extra-curricular programmes give students the chance to work collaboratively with peers from other classes or year groups and can provide tailored opportunities for targeted groups of learners.

Staff reported an increase in students’ self-esteem, creativity, technique and understanding as well as skills and language in relation to the work carried out.

“I learnt that art is not just getting messy; it’s part of who you are and what you do.”
